4 DAYS ABERDARE FOOT WALK
This trek through the Aberdare Mountains is a
fascinating walk amongst the exotic flora and fauna found above
2500metres.Views of the Rift Valley are breath taking and the
experience is made more memorable by camping above the
surrounding forests, occasional encounters with big game such as
elephant and buffalo, great bush buck and other antelopes.
Aberdares (Nyandarua) overlooks the Great Rift Valley and lies
on its eastern edge. There are two main peaks, Lesatima to the
north and Kinangop to the south. Various species of wildlife
inhabit these mountain ranges, hiding in the heavily forested
slopes and in the upper moorlands. Walking is always cool with
plenty of clear mountain streams. Our walk starts below the
bamboo forest, climbing up onto the moorlands. There is always
danger walking through the African bush but we do not expect
many close encounters with large game. However, our trained and
armed gameranger knows the area and the habits of the game.

Departing our office in the morning., we go north to Mweiga to
